I recommend the Periyar Mist Homestay (91-9497504774; firstname.lastname@example.org) most highly.
The rooms are modern and comfortable, Sulfi and his wife made my daughter and me feel like part of their family, and their two daughters are as cute and friendly as you could wish. Two brief examples of their hospitality:
1. When I asked about the location of the nearest ATM and where to buy tickets for the Periyar Reserve, Sulfi didn’t just tell me where they were, he loaded me on the back of his motorbike and took me there.
2. When they offered us dinner one night, they included us in their family dinner.
When it came time to pay, there was no extra charge for the food, transportation, etc. When I insisted that it was only fair to pay for these things, Sulfi said we could pay whatever amount we thought was proper.
Our experience staying with them was one of the highlights of my month in India.
